Welcome to Cold War Gamer, a blog I am using to record my Cold War wargaming projects. These range from fictitious Cold War hot projects to historical conflicts that took place around the globe throughout the Cold War era, all modelled and gamed in 20mm. The blog includes links to various resources useful to the Cold War Gamer.

My current projects include: Central Front; British & Soviet. South African Border War; Angolans and South Africans. Soviet Afghan War; Soviets and Afghans


These pages provide an overview of and a set of links to the principal resources of the blog.  These resources can also be accessed from the tag menu but that will provide a less structured view of the available information on the blog.  Where there is no link to the item it is still a work in progress and will be posted at some time in the future.


The Review posts do pretty much what they say on the tin they review models, products, books and web resources.  The modelling reviews also provide links to other reviews and resources on the subject along with any associated posts in some of the other categories.


The modelling reviews generally provide an overview of the equipment, comment on quality and alternative models before looking at issues of construction and related products such as decals
